rely on big at-bats, instead relying on pitching and strategy to get that much-needed victory. this morning team coverage in two different time zones. bob redell is live at at&t park and we start off with comcast sportsnet bay area's jaymee sire who's traveled all the way to detroit. she's hooded up ready for the rain, weather and more at comerica park. >> reporter: good morning. yes, the rain is definitely falling here but giants fans should be excited about the fact the last eight teams to go up 2-0 in the world series have gone on to win the series. in fact 14 of the last 15 have done that and thanks to madison bumgarner last night they can say they are up 2-0. madison bumgarner continuing his world series dominance, picked up right where he left off in 2010, extending his scoreless inning streak in the world series to 15. that is tied for the fourth longest to start a world series career. >> defense did a great job.
6:01 am
they hit some balls hard and we had them positioned right and it worked out. >> reporter: and like you guys mentioned, not the explosive long ball offense we saw in game one, but the giants managing just enough last night to come away with a win. playing a little small ball including this perfect bunt that ended up leading to a run. as for game three, that is coming up on saturday. it will be ryan voguelsong against anibal sanchez. the giants are headed here and will have a workout here at comerica park a little later today and we will have full coverage of that over on comcast sportsnet. >> thanks so much. stay bundled up out there. now that the series is moving to detroit, what's a giants fan to do? some will hit the road to follow the team and the good news, some tickets are still available if you know where to look. bob redell is live in san
6:02 am
francisco this morning with more on how deep you're going to have to dig to make it to transit ma that ballpark. >> reporter: you'll need a small version of ft. knox. if you want to see the giants off, they'll probably be leaving at&t park just a few hours from now, around 9:00 to catch their 9:30 charter out of sfo to detroit. in 2010 they boarded buses here at the 2nd street gate. you can see they already have barricades set up here. assuming that they go through the same routine they did two years ago, you can come out here, see the players possibly get an autograph and wish them well before they go to game three tomorrow night after winning game two last night here. if you're planning on joining them on the trip to detroit, it is going to cost you a little chunk of change. there's a website called sports travel. for a one ticket, one-night stay, one person, prices starting just around $1300.
6:03 am
goes up to $2300 if you're doing both games. three games, close to $3500. we went on to stubhub just to see what the ticket prices are going for tomorrow night's game, game three in detroit. anywhere from just around $299 to just over $41,000. that's for a suite. it goes down from there. the expensive seats outside the suites, $7,000, $5,000. a lot of money, huge investment. if you're a baseball fan, you're definitely guaranteed a show. we want to show you what a party looks like at 35,000 feet. this video courtesy of virgin american airlines. this was a flight between sfo and chicago last night. you can see the passengers watching the game live on the little screens in front of the back seats tvs as the giants clinched game two against the tigers. quite a party there. coming up, we'll tell you a maybe interesting fact you do not realize. most foreign-born players to play in a world series happening
6:04 am
right now, so they're making world series history. first with pablo sandoval, those three home runs in game one, the most in any single game -- not the most, the fourth person to do that and now you have this other, most foreign-born players playing a world series. we'll tell you who they are if you haven't figured that out yet. reporting live here at at&t park, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much. we'll check back with you. game three of the world series is set for tomorrow in detroit. the first pitch tops out at 5:07 and we'll have continuing coverage of all things giants throughout the morning. 24/7/365 all day long on nbcbayarea.com. just check out the home page for the latest world series news. in the meantime, we're going to check the forecast with meteorologist rob mayeda. he's in for christina. really nice temperatures expected today. >> yeah, including around san francisco. it's a shame the giants are leaving town because the best weather we've seen all week long moving in today and through the weekend. i want to give you a preview of what they'll be finding awaiting them in detroit. as you saw jay mee sire out
6:05 am
there, pretty chilly. it's going to be chilly out at the ballpark. notice the showers come monday and maybe a few showers on saturday so stay tuned to the forecast as we get into those weekend games. low 40s in the north bay, quite chilly. jacket weather no matter where you are in the bay area but things will change rapidly this afternoon. in oakland, northeast breeze there and it's the offshore winds and north winds we'll see today. that helping to send the storm track out of to the north and help clear out our skies. hour by hour, through 5:00, 6:00, maybe some high clouds for the north bay and that's about it. as we go through the afternoon, 1:00, already seeing 70s inland and upper 70s towards 4:00. 70s and 80s for our valleys this weekend and then turning a bit cooler as we get towards tuesday and it does look like we'll see some showers right around halloween into the middle part
6:06 am
of next week. mike. >> all right, rob. we're looking already to the south bay where even on a friday we do have some slowing. a build for 101 northbound with these headlights just underneath that 280/680 interchange. we'll look on the maps and i've marked that with a yellow arrow as well. zone speeds in the upper 50s as you're approaching 880. but that trend continues. we do see a nice, smooth drive for the rest of those northbound routes but i'm watching how 85 over the last ten minutes we saw some slowing coming off almaden expressway. we'll watch for the colors to change here. live look at the bay bridge, no metering rights yet but the cash lanes have the backup. we'll expect the metering lights in the next ten. back to you. we have new details this morning in a bay area twist in what's nothing short of just a tragic and gruesome killing in new york city. police say a mother came home to find two of her children stabbed to death in the bathtub,
6:07 am
allegedly killed by their nanny. we now know the mother and father did live in san francisco for a time. coming up at 6:30 we'll have a live report with marla tellez with all the latest on this scary investigation and exactly what happened in the moments before those tragic killings. >> just a horrible story there. happening right now, grief counselors will we at an east bay high school this morning helping students deal with the death of a classmate. cathy qiu's body was found at san gregorio state beach on sunday. her identity was discovered yesterday only after a fellow classmate stepped forward. christie smith is live at albany high school where she was an honor student, the young girl that was found, and a member of the tennis team. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, laura and jon. yeah, students will officially get the heart-breaking news this morning and of course as you said counselors will be here to help them deal with their grief. cathy qiu was a student in the
6:08 am
albany school district since she was in fifth grade. she was a transfer student from the richmond area but i can tell you that wor is already spreading fast about her death. a condolence page is up on facebook with many people offering prayers and remembering her as a very helpful and kind person. she played tennis at albany high, was an honor student with a 4.25 gpa. now, the coroner had identified the 16-year-old after a body washed onshore sunday near half moon bay, but investigators weren't initially sure who it was. but they did get a break from a classmate here at albany high who saw a news report and figured that it might be her. qiu's family reported her missing on september 27th. she was a transfer student, as i mentioned, from richmond and the case is being investigated by richmond police as a possible runaway. police said that she had previously been reported missing by her family in april and was located in colorado and brought back home. at this point the coroner is saying there are no obvious
6:09 am
signs of foul play, but toxicology reports should be back within the next two weeks to help determine an exact cause of death. reporting live in albany, christie smith, "today in the bay." it is 6:09 right now. two arrests in oakland last night as hundreds marked the one-year date of that occupy movement. overnight there were no violent clashes between protesters and police like we saw one year ago. several hundred people did march through the streets of oakland to mark one year since protesters were kicked out of their encampment in front of city hall. many of the marchers say the movement was started as a protest to stand up for the middle class. it maymented but overall it's not as strong. >> obviously not as strong as it was. we had 100,000 people with us on november 2nd of last year. we are trying to rebuild. >> police officers out there did keep an eye on that rally and march just to make sure things did not get out of han. as we told you, two people were
6:10 am
arrested, but police say for the most part overall they were pleased with the outcome. 6:10. help is on the way for the oakland police department. governor jerry brown says chp will deploy officers to oakland and stockton as early as next week. the additional officers are meant to help increase patrols in high crime areas and conduct traffic stops. the time is 6:10. coming up, banking on ballots. we'll tell you how campaign spending has reached the $2 billion mark. plus cleanup in cuba as the east coast now braces for storms. the high waves, big winds making landfall today just ahead. and in local business news, apple absolutely startles the market with numbers that not a lot of people like. we'll take a look coming up. and body image. why the tsa is taking security screening machines out of several major airports. we'll have that coming up.

6:14 am
la guardia in new york, l.a.x., chicago o'hare and boston logan. now, the full body machines are not being retired, they're simply being moved to smaller airports. 6:14. here's a quick check of the top stories. grief counselors will be at albany high school to help classmates cope with the death of a classmate. cathy qiu was found on a beach near half moon bay. a suspect murdered a castro valley woman and set her home on fire. the sheriff's office would not confirm whether the suspect knew the woman. we're expecting to learn more about this case in a press conference coming up later today. san francisco giants packing their bags for detroit for game three of the world series. the giants beat the tigers 2-0 to take a 2-0 lead in the best of seven series. game three is tomorrow night. it is 6:15 right now.

6:17 am
than analysts were hoping. you kind of blame the company for that, because it's possible fans were waiting to buy that new ipad mini. the devices are also getting more complex and more expensive to build, and that may cut into profits. now, coincidentally, samsung has reported its profits too and it's a funny reminder that we treat samsung as the underdog, but it isn't. samsung sold twice as many smartphones as apple. twice as many phones in the same quarter as the cupertino company. speaking of tablets, did you know the san francisco 49ers playbook is on ipad? a number of nfl teams have converted over to ipad. you can push out new plays to players wherever they are. they can watch game films at starbucks. denver-based developer is changing these xs and os is going to be my guest right after "meet the press" on sunday morning. jon, as you well know, those play books have gotten just enormous and are tough to lug

6:19 am
winds in the hills. with the winds out of the north, that's going to really help to dry us out, clear out our skies and lead to warmer temperatures this weekend. this weekend looks like we have a chance of getting into some low 80s and some rain will come back, but not until probably late tuesday of next week in the north bay. for now the storm track going off to the north and what's taking it to the north is high pressure that's going to build inland just to our east. when you get high pressure towards the east, it tends to enhance after offshore wind pattern. we'll see a little bit of that today in saturday and then maybe sunday the sea breeze will come back an cool off the coast but dry weather for your weekend and temperatures climbing the next few days. low 70s to mid-70s around san jose, morgan hill pretty nice, 75 degrees. also 75 in santa cruz. 78 grows around pleasanton and sunol for today. and low 70s around oakland. upper 70s in santa rosa. a bit breezy with north winds picking up for the afternoon and the weekend looks nice. chilly mornings but nice

6:21 am
looking at that burst for 101 sticking around up to 880. 87 lowering those speeds and now 85. so far lighter than the south bay as to be expected, guys. back to you. it is 6:21. coming up is playing ball about to get blocked in the south bay? we have the new issue that could keep the a's away and this time we're not talking about territorial rights. plus trapping time in a bottle. the message that traveled 6,000 miles all the way to california just ahead.

she's all loaded up and ready to go in comerica park where rain is coming down. looks like you're fighting it off, though. you're a game time warrior. >> reporter: absolutely. we are out here rain or shine. the giants are expected to hold a work outlater today but they have to be feeling good about themselves as they come in up 2-0. very different from the last series where they have been playing catchup. we know just how well they have been playing at home but as for at home, it couldn't have gone better for the giants in the first two games. madison bumgarner last night just dealing. we saw him in 2010, scoreless innings then and picked up right where he left off, extending that scoreless inning streak to 15, tied for fourth longest all time. >> it definitely feels better an a lot less stressful. we can't stop pushing or we'll find ourself in the same position we've been in. so we've got to keep pushing
6:45 am
until it's over with. >> reporter: meanwhile a scary moment for tigers pitcher doug fister who took a line drive off of his head in the second inning. it was recommend nichkt of when brandon mccarthy suffered a fractured skull on september 5th and that ended his season, but the merced native answered all of the standard questions and ended up retiring 13 of the next 16 batters he faced. as for game three, it features ryan vogelsong and anibal sanchez coming up on saturday here from comerica park. as we know, a lot of the giants fans will probably be making those rally enchiladas once again. they were certainly popular in the last series, guys. >> and very delicious too. thank you very much. 6:46. one inspirational story coming out of last night's game, the appearance of bryan stow. the 43-year-old was a special guest of the giants. you may recall he suffered that serious head injury when he was attacked outside dodgers stadium back in 2011. stow is still in rehab but was well enough to make it to last
6:46 am
night's game with his family. the giants welcomed him with a brief message on the scoreboard. the team said stow didn't want any type of ceremony or special attention. it's safe to say the world series fever is not only spreading right here in the bay area, it is spreading worldwide. giants and tiger fans can be found all across the country and around the planet. today in the bay's bob redell is live at at&t park with more on this global impact the world series is having. it sounds appropriate, bob. >> reporter: and it should come as no surprise. good morning to you, jon. because there are more foreign-born baseball players playing in this world series than in any other world series in history. most notably, a lot of them from venezuela. just look on the giants. you've got marco scutaro, gregor blanco and pablo sandoval all from that country. when they look into the stands not only do they spot the orange and black but possibly the red, blue and yellow. those are the colors on their
6:47 am
country's flag being held by fans who flew from venezuela here to san francisco to see their hometown boys play. and back home, venezuelans are heading to bars and local eateries demanding that the tv be tuned to a game being played thousands of miles away. >> it's a great feeling just to see the flag here in the world series and putting venezuela on the top. >> venezuelan people love baseball and they always give you great support. it's nice to see the people back home happy for us. >> reporter: those are thoughts from gregor blanco and marco scutaro, two of the giants who will be heading with the team on a few hours from now on a charter flight out of sfo. that flight leaves at 9:30. if things play out like they did at the 2010 world series, they should be leaving at&t park here at the 2nd street gate maybe around 9:. they'll be boarding buses. there are barricades set up here. if it's like two years ago,
6:48 am
there will be fans out here so you can come out and see the players off before they head to detroit and maybe catch an autograph along the way. reporting live here at at&t park, bob redell, "today in the bay." game three of the world series is tomorrow in detroit. the first pitch will be thrown out 7:05 our time and we will have continuing coverage of all things giants throughout the morning all day long as well. just check out our home page with the latest world series news. pretty exciting. >> it's getting close. it's so good. so good as rob points out that the giants are splitting town right as it's getting nice. >> they're having to dodge a little light rain but now things are clearing out. we'll give you a sneak peek of the weather we expect in detroit for our giants later on. right now you can see the giants flag there. notice the direction it's pointing. we've got a little bit of an offshore breeze. when you see in the morning, clear skies usually sets up for a pretty nice afternoon inland. in terms of the forecast the next three days, what we're going to see are temperatures
